8 ounces tempeh

For the marinade
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 1/2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
2 1/2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/4-1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes (to taste)
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1 teaspoon dried basil
1 teaspoon dried rosemary, crushed between fingers


1. Cut tempeh into 1/2 inch wide cubes.

2. Combine the marinade ingredients in a container with a lid, stir to combine.

3. Add tempeh, cover and shake well until all pieces are coated.

4. Pace in refrigerator for one hour or overnight.

5. Shake container every now and again (when you think of it) to coat all pieces. The tempeh will begin to absorb all the marinade.

6. When ready to cook, heat a non stick skillet over medium low heat.

7. Add tempeh and any liquid and cook for about 10 minutes, turning pieces until they begin to caramelize.

8. Serve immediately or keep in a covered container in fridge.
